FAC: Eastwood Town 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers

BY foxsports • November 29, 2008

Eastwood Town entered folklore as they produced arguably the shock of round two to dump Wycombe out of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-0 home win.

Lindon Meikle opened the scoring after 34 minutes for the UniBond Premier Division side to stun Peter Taylor's men.

Substitute Peter Knox then wrapped up a famous victory in the final minute to send Paul Cox's men into the third round dreaming of a potential money-spinning tie against a Barclays Premier League side.

The home side almost made a dream start when Richard Dunning's free-kick was flicked on by Mark Hume and Russell Cooke headed against the crossbar. League Two leaders Wycombe were also denied by woodwork themselves when Lewwis Spence's 12th-minute effort rattled the post.

The breakthrough did come just after the half-hour mark when right winger Meikle bent a stunning left-footed effort into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Knox made sure on the stroke of full-time when Todd dispossessed David McCracken and squared for the substitute to finish the scoring.
